Zach Dirlam@Zach_DirlamSenior Analyst IINovember 29, 2012

The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes aced the first half of their first test of the season at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils rallied with a 50-point explosion in the second half to hold off Thad Matta's team 73-68.

The victory gave the Blue Devils their third win over a top five opponent this season, and extended their non-conference home winning streak to 97 games.

Mason Plumlee led the Blue Devils, who were dominated on the offensive glass for much of the game, with 21 points and 17 rebounds.

Freshman guard Rasheed Sulaimon did not score at all in the first half, but came up huge in the second half for the Blue Devils with 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting.

The Buckeyes were led by DeShaun Thomas' 16 points along with 11-point efforts from Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. All three of them had to deal with foul trouble for much of the contest, though.
